Good News from Merriam-Webster
Plant based is, as it shoud be, in the dictionary!
This month, Merriam-Webster added 370 new terms to its dictionary, including “plant based” and “oat milk.” The terms were added under the dictionary’s food category, which also includes fall flavor phenomenon pumpkin spice. “Names of foods from around the world become familiar to us through menus, recipes, and cooking shows,” Merriam-Webster stated. “But homegrown flavors—particularly one that’s become (in)famously associated with autumn—also give us new words that need to be defined.”
